The 1979–80 Canada men's national ice hockey team represented Canada at the 1980 Winter Olympics held in Lake Placid in the United States.

This was the first men's ice hockey team to compete for Canada at the Olympics since the 1968 Winter Olympics held at Grenoble, France.

Canada's team placed sixth in the tournament to finish out of the medals.

History[edit]

Canada returned to ice hockey at the 1980 Winter Olympics after missing both the 1972 and 1976 Winter Olympics due to a dispute with the IIHF over the use of professional athletes at world championships.[1]
